Adaptive Cutting System

Bevel cutting capability from -1° to 47°

Maximum cutting length off the Project Table is approximately 56″
Maximum cutting length on the Project Table is 48″

2 1/8″ maximum cut at 90° and 1 1/2″ at 45°

The longest/widest piece that can fit under the Guide Track, when attached to the Project table, is 48″. Using the Repetitive Stops in the Project Table, the longest/widest cut that can be made is 25″. For cuts longer than 25″, the 48″ Extension is used. It slides into one of the channels in the table surface, and it can be set to the desired measurement using the scale on the Extension Bar and an indicator on the secondary rule in the table.

The Plunge Saw is covered by a 2-year warranty, as explained in the owner’s manual.

The Versa-Stops position workpieces perfectly for 45° miter cuts.
To cut other miter angles, from 0° to 60°, the Miter Guide is used.

The Plunge Saw includes 48-Tooth Saw Blade that measures 6 1/2″ (165mm) diameter. The tooth thickness (kerf width) of the blade is 2.2mm. The blade has a 20mm arbor hole.

Here are multiple differences between a Plunge Saw and a standard circular saw. You can learn more about these in the Plunge Saw setup video (https://youtu.be/fUMc_cwSveo).

A few key differences include:

The blade on a plunge saw is fully shrouded.
The blade on a plunge saw plunges below the saw base to your preset depth while in use. The blade on a standard circular saw always hangs below the saw base at your preset depth.
A standard circular saw uses a swinging blade guard for user protection. A plunge saw uses a shrouded blade. This minimizes the risk of accidental blade contact, especially since the blade on a plunge saw retracted into the shroud as soon as you release downward pressure on the saw handles.
A standard circular saw does not have a riving knife.

You can download a new owner’s manual from the appropriate product page and kregtool.com. Note that the Plunge Saw and 62 Guide Track are both covered in the Plunge Saw owner’s manual. The Project Table Top and Base are both covered in the Project Table—Top owner’s manual.

Versa-Stops are intended to act as stops for materials while cutting. To do that, the stops are placed as far apart as the workpiece will allow, and the workpiece is butted against them. Whenever possible, one of the Versa-Stops should be positioned under the Guide Track. The shorter stops are designed to fit under the track easily. The tall stops are positioned in other holes in the table, and offer extra height for maximum workpiece support. 

Usage of the measuring rules is explained in detail in the owner’s manual. The primary rules are used for measuring cuts greater than 8″ long or wide. The secondary rules are used for measuring cuts less than 10″ long or wide. The Repetitive Stops can be positioned with in two ways to align correctly with either the primary or secondary measuring rules. Each Repetitive Stop has a protruding tab that aligns with the rule, and an arrow that points to the proper rule to use, depending on orientation of the Repetitive Stop.

As the electronic brake engages, it may cause the sound of the saw to change briefly. This is normal. The electronic brake works by briefly reversing the polarity of the saw motor when the switch is released. This reverses the rotation direction of the motor for just a fraction of a second to stop the blade from spinning very quickly. This method is very effective at stopping the blade, and doesn’t cause the wear associated with a mechanical brake.

Kreg® designed the Plunge saw with the blade on the left side to create an optimal user interface for right-handed saw users. This positions the blade where it is easy to view while cutting.

The left-hand blade position is also optimal for making cuts with the 62″ Guide Track on the Project Table. This positions the blade near the user-side of the table.

Make sure that the anti-kickback control (red knob on saw base) is in the “off” position.

The Kreg® Project Table is designed to accept and work with the Kreg® 62″ Guide Track, and has not been designed to accept and work with tracks from other manufacturers. While it may be possible, Kreg makes no such claims, and does not recommend using the tracks from other manufacturers with the Kreg® Project Table.

The Kreg® 62″ Guide Track is designed to work with the Kreg® Plunge Saw, and has not been designed to work with tracks from other manufacturers. While it may be possible, Kreg makes no such claims, and does not recommend using the 62″ Guide Track with saws from other manufacturers.

The Kreg® Plunge Saw is designed to work with the Kreg® 62″ Guide Track, and has not been designed to work with tracks from other manufacturers. While it may be possible, Kreg makes no such claims, and does not recommend using the Plunge Saw with tracks from other manufacturers.

No, the Adaptive Cutting System Plunge Saw is not compatible with the Kreg® Accu-Cut™ track. The Accu-Cut track is designed to work with the Universal Sled that accompanies it. The Adaptive Cutting System Plunge Saw is designed to ride directly on the Adaptive Cutting System 62″ Guide Track, and is not compatible with the Accu-Cut Universal Sled

No, the Adaptive Cutting System Plunge Saw is not compatible with the Kreg® Rip-Cut™. The Rip Cut-Cut guide rail is designed to work with the Universal Sled that accompanies it. The Adaptive Cutting System Plunge Saw is designed to ride directly on the Adaptive Cutting System 62″ Guide Track, and is not compatible with the Rip-Cut Universal Sled

The Adaptive Cutting System Project Table – Top is designed to be used with the Project Table – Base. In addition to being portable, the Base is designed to not interfere with any dog holes in the table surface, and it’s made so that, should you accidentally ever cut through the table surface completely, the blade will not strike steel. For these reasons, we don’t recommend using the Project Table – Top with the Kreg® Universal Bench, or with other bases.

The Adaptive Cutting System Rips Guides and Parallel Guides are for use when cutting with the 62″ Guide Track off the Project Table. They are not intended to be used when the track is on the Project Table. The Rip Guides and Parallel Guides bring measuring workpiece positioning capabilities to making cuts with the Plunge Saw and 62″ Guide Track when being used independently of the Project Table.

The Adaptive Cutting System Rips Guides and Parallel Guides are designed for use with the 62″ Guide Track and the Plunge Saw. These guides can be attached to some tracks from other manufacturers. In some cases, though, the Parallel Guides, especially, may interfere with movement of other manufacturer’s saws on the track. Also, because the overall width of the track from other manufacturers may be different from the Kreg Track, it may not be possible to accurately calibrate the measuring scales on the Rip Guides and Parallel Guides.

Yes, you can attach a second 62″ Guide Track to make cuts up to 112″-lonmg when using the Guide Tracks and Plunge Saw off the Project Table. You cannot use two 62″ Guide Tracks on the Project Table. Guide Tracks are connected using Guide Track Connectors, which are sold in pairs.

No, the guide track should only be positioned on the Track Hinges, and cuts should only be made in this area. This prevents unnecessarily marring the table with unnecessary saw cuts. In the event that you accidentally set the Plunge Saw depth too deep, and you cut through the MDF work surface, the Project Table design does not have any steel parts of the base located where the saw blade could strike them, as long as the Guide Track is used in its intended position.

No, Kreg® does not currently offer shorter or longer pieces of Guide Track.

Kreg recommends always using a genuine Kreg® saw blade with the Plunge Saw. The saw requires a blade that measures 6 1/2″ (165mm) diameter and has a 20mm-diameter arbor hole. Most standard circular-saw blades have a 5/8″ arbor hole that is too small to fit the arbor on the Plunge Saw.

If you choose to use a blade from another track saw, it must also have a kerf thickness (tooth width) of 2.2mm or greater. Blades with a kerf thickness less than 2.2mm will not allow the Plunge Saw riving knife to operate correctly.

Yes, the Adaptive Cutting System is designed to stay calibrated for accurate setups and measurements once set up. If anything ever gets knocked out of adjustment, though, it can be recalibrated easily. If you ever find that you are unable to maintain or reset calibration of any part of the Adaptive Cutting System, you should contact Kreg.

The Plunge Saw is designed to be used with the Adaptive Cutting System 62″ Guide Track. While it is possible to cut without the track, Kreg recommends always using the saw and track together for all cuts.

Yes, the Plunge Saw has an electronic brake. This brake works by briefly reversing the polarity of the saw motor when the switch is released. This reverses the rotation direction of the motor for just a fraction of a second to stop the blade from spinning very quickly. This method is very effective at stopping the blade, and doesn’t cause the wear associated with a mechanical brake.

The Adaptive Cutting System does require calibration to ensure precise cutting and accurate measurement. The setup and calibration processes are detailed in the owner’s manual, as well as in these two videos that walk through the setup processes step by step:

Kreg has established a program that identifies retailers who carry the Adaptive Cutting System and who have the System displayed in their showroom. You can find these Adaptive Cutting System Certified Retailers by using the Adaptive Cutting System Dealer Locator.

The Adaptive Cutting System components ship in separate boxes/packages to maintain sizes and weights that are shippable by a standard parcel delivery service (FedEx if ordered directly from Kreg). Each of these items will be in a separate box:

Plunge Saw: 16.5 lbs.
62″ Guide Track: 8.7 lbs.
Project Table – Top: 55 lbs.
Project Table – Base: 32 lbs.
If you purchase the Adaptive Cutting System Master Kit (ACS3000), you should receive four (4) boxes.

If you purchase the Adaptive Cutting System Saw + Guide Track Kit (ACS2000), you should receive two (2) boxes.

If you purchase the Adaptive Cutting System Project Table Kit (ACS1000), you should receive two (2) boxes.

Adaptive Cutting System accessories and replacement parts are packaged individually.

The Project Table has adjustable leg levelers that provide almost 3″ of adjustment—from 33 3/4″ to almost 36 1/2″.

The 62″ Guide Track can be used with materials as thick as the maximum cutting capacity of the Plunge Saw: 2 1/8″.

Make sure that the depth-of-cut setting is adjusted to match the thickness of the material you are cutting.

There can be two reasons the Plunge Saw won’t plunge:

When first taken out of the box, the Splinter Guard interferes with the saw blade because the Splinter Guard is made extra thick. When you make the first plunge cut during saw setup, as detailed in the owner’s manual, the blade will trim the Splinter Guard. In order to plunge the saw before the Splinter Guard has been trimmed, you need to remove it by using the smaller hex wrench located in the saw handle.

Any time you use the Plunge Saw, the interlock switch on the handle needs to be depressed to allow the saw to plunge, and to allow the motor switch to activate and turn the saw on. Make sure you are fully depressing the interlock to engage the plunge mechanism and the saw motor.

Adjust the tracking controllers (black dials on saw base) using the guidelines in the Plunge Saw owner’s manual.

Clamping Tools

When fully released, the opening on this clamp is slightly over 5″, which allows you to clamp together two 2x4s with ease.

The Right Angle Clamp makes it easy to assemble projects at 90 degrees. One of the clamp arms has a steel pin that fits snugly into a Kreg pocket hole, letting you clamp two pieces together as you drive a pocket screw into the adjacent hole. It’s like having an extra set of hands to help you assemble your projects! 

You want to clamp your joint line to ensure a flush joint. Because your screw enters at an angle, pieces will naturally try to shift. With the clamp firmly and correctly positioned on the joint line, you minimize the potential for “workpiece shift” and create the strongest joint possible.

For best results, always place the large face of your Kreg Face Clamp on the “show side” of your joint. The “show side” is the side that will show on your finished project.

Due to different head styles, the non-marring pad that comes with your Bench Klamp™ will not work with our Face Clamp™ family. Non-marring pads are usually unnecessary when using our Face Clamps™, as they are generally not used to apply the same amount of clamping pressure as our Bench Klamps™ are.

Cutting & Measuring Tools

If your angle is greater than 45 degrees, you can cut your complimentary angle from the other direction. For example, if you need to cut a 60-degree angle, you would cut a 30-degree angle from the other direction, leaving you with a 60-degree angle.

If you would like a longer bandsaw fence, you can purchase our Heavy-Duty Trak™ (Item # KMS7704, 48″-long) and cut it to the length you want.

Yes, you can use your Precision Miter Gauge on the right side of the blade. However, keep in mind that the measuring tape that is provided is designed to be used with the gauge on the left side of the blade.

Yes, you will receive the Production Stop and Swing Stop with your Precision Trak and Stop Kit.

To adjust the Precision Bandsaw Fence for blade drift, you will need a fairly long piece of wood. Cut down the middle of your wood piece (about halfway) and then shut the saw off, leaving the saw blade in the piece of wood. Take a pencil and draw a line down the surface of the table—along the edge of the board you just cut, essentially using this as a straight edge. Loosen the bolts that hold the fence extrusion on. Line your fence up to the line that you just drew on your table surface and retighten your bolts. You should now be aligned with the drift of the blade.

You will want to cut the tape at the 1″ mark and place it on the edge of your fence. This allows for 1″ of clearance space, so that even at 45 degrees, your fence will not hit the blade. Once the tape is applied, take a piece of scrap wood and cut it to a known length. Then, set your Swing Stop to the same length as the board you just cut. Loosen the screws that hold the fence in place and move it until the distance between the stop and blade is greater than the length of the board. Raise the blade on your tablesaw so that it is above the table’s surface. Place your board of known length against your blade. Slowly move the fence over until the stop hits your board. Lock down your fence and it should be calibrated. Test it with some scrap pieces to be sure.

The fence that comes with the kit is 18″ long. However, 2″ is on the clamp block itself, giving you 16″ on the table surface. If you would like a longer fence, you can purchase our Heavy-Duty Trak™ (Item # KMS7704, 48″-long) and cut it to the length you want. 

The back fence needs to be 21/4″-tall for the Production Stop and Swing Stop to function properly.

The holes in the bar are for our adjustment screws, which allow the Precision Miter Gauge to be used with slots slightly larger than 3/4″-wide.

The Re-Saw Guide (available in 4.5″ and 7″) provides more control when re-sawing your material. Its curved front allows you to adjust your feed angle as you cut.

The miter bar measures 3/8″ x 3/4″ x 24″. This fits in most miter slots. However, we do offer adjustment screws if your slot is slightly larger than 3/4″.

The Precision Trak and Stop Kit™ includes four pieces of Trak™ that are each 2′-long. The individual pieces can be butted up against one another and placed on either side of your saw to create a longer piece, giving you the ability to create a system that functions well in any workspace.

Yes, the Micro-Adjuster will work with the Precision Bandsaw Fence. It will screw into the left side of the clamp block.

First, please check the Precision Bandsaw Fence™ Compatibility Chart.

If not, check with our Customer Service Team to make sure. You may reach them by phone at toll-free 800-447-8638 or online.

Joining Tools

At this time, no, plugs are not available for use with the Kreg Jig® HD. For standard Kreg Jigs®, use 3/8″. And for the Micro-Pocket™ Drill Guide, use 19/64″.

It is not recommended to use coarse-thread screws with hardwoods. Coarse-thread screws may cause hardwood to split.

Yes, it is okay to use Blue-Kote™ screws in pressure-treated wood.

The Kreg Jig® Mini should not be used without a clamp. If the jig shifts during the drilling process, it can break the tip and damage your workpiece pocket holes. Find the right Kreg Clamp here. 

Yes, with the Kreg Jig® K4 Master System or Kreg Jig® K5, you can use your spacer blocks to get the correct position. If you have the Kreg Jig® K3 Kit, you will be able to use both the spacer blocks and the included Portable Base.

We recommend that you glue your pocket-hole plugs in place. This will ensure that they stay in place during the entire life of your project. Find the right plugs for your next project here.

You will attach your deck board from both sides. With proper deck board spacing of at least 1/4″, the jig will fit on the back and front side of the deck board.

Unfortunately, we do not have adapters for the Dust Collection Attachment. Adapters for various vacuum sizes should be available at most local hardware stores.

After careful consideration, Kreg has discontinued sharpening drill bits.

We appreciate and value our relationship and regret any inconvenience this decision may cause. Replacement drill bits can be purchased at www.kregtool.com or through your favorite retailer.

For more information, call us at 800-447-8638 (Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm CST) or email us at technicalsupport@kregtool.com.

Yes. You can use 2x material if you use the 25/8″ Kreg deck screws, which are specifically designed for 2x decking material. They are available in quantities of 100 and 525. 

Press down on the ratchet release and slide the clamp assembly all the way back. Position the workpiece against the drill guide. Move the toggle handle to its full-down (clamped) position. Then, slide the clamp assembly forward until the pad contacts the workpieces. While holding the clamp mechanism against the workpiece, lift up on the handle until it clicks twice. Then, press the handle back down to the locked position. 

For a firm hold on your workpiece, you may have to adjust the position of the clamp pad on your Kreg Jig® K3, K4, or K5. To do this, release the lock-nut, rotate the clamp pad in or out, and test the hold by depressing the toggle. Repeat this process until you get a secure hold on the workpiece. Then, retighten the lock-nut.

To get the right pocket-hole depth, you’ll have to adjust the position of the collar on the drill bit. Place your bit in the Depth Setting Gauge on the Kreg Jig® K3 or K4, with the step of the bit at the marking that matches your workpiece thickness. Slide the Depth Collar towards the jig base and lock it in place with the included Allen wrench.

To ensure the exit-point of your screw is at the center of the workpiece for the strongest joint possible, you’ll need to adjust the position of your pocket hole by raising or lowering the Drill Guide’s height to match your workpiece thickness. Loosen the Drill Guide Pin or pull it back on the Kreg Jig® K5, lift the Drill Guide until the correct mark is showing just above the jig body, and then retighten or release the pin.

B and C holes are 9/16″ apart, A and B are 7/8″ apart, and A and C are 1 7/16″ apart. When working with 1″-2″ wide material, use holes B and C. When working with 2″-3″ wide material, use holes A and B. When working with 3″-4″ wide material, use holes A and C.

When drilling panels, you can use any of the Drill Guide’s three holes and reposition the guide block each time to create your own spacing. We recommend placing the first pocket hole roughly 2″ away from the exposed edge of the panel, and every 6″ after that.

Use this chart to decipher the stock codes on Kreg screws:

With the purchase of some Kreg Jigs®, our Cabinetmaking Booklets is yours free! Make sure you have the promotion code that is supplied in the pamphlet that came with your Kreg Jig®. Then, go to kregtool.com/plan-redemption, enter your information, and you will be reading your Cabinetmaking Booklet in no time!

Making your markings more visible can be accomplished in numerous ways, including paint, grease pen, white-out, and even fingernail polish. Below is a successful technique we’ve utilized:

Mix equal parts flour and water (2-3 tablespoons should be adequate) into a paste.
Carefully rub the paste into the Kreg Jig® markings with your finger.
Wipe away the excess paste with a very lightly dampened cloth.
The paste mixture will harden over time. Repeat if necessary.

Place the stop-collar setting block on the jig base in front of the drill guide. Slide the step bit into one of the drill guide bushings and drop the pilot tip in the hole in the block that corresponds to the length of the screw you’ll be using. With the step bit shoulder resting on the block, slide the stop collar onto the drive-end of the bit so it rests on the drill guide. Then, tighten the stop collar set screw with the included hex wrench.

When using the R3 Kreg Jig® for repair applications, the lips on the sliders that normally goes over the edge of your board can get in the way. To fix this, take both sliders off, flip them over, and put them on opposite sides. Now, the lip is pointing up instead of down. There is a mark on the bottom side of the jig to set your thickness with, just like you would in a normal application. This way, you won’t have to take your project completely apart in order to reinforce it with pocket holes. 

To use the Kreg Jig® Drill Guide Block in portable applications, you will need to use your spacer blocks. These blocks slide on to the bottom of the Drill Guide Block. Depending on the thickness of wood you are working with, you will need to adjust the number of spacer blocks you use. Each spacer block you use will add an additional 1/4″ to your setting. For example, with no spacer blocks, it is set up for 1/2″ material. But when you add a spacer block, it would then be set up for 3/4″ material.

700 screws is roughly enough to cover a 10′ x 20′ deck, depending on your joist spacing and other factors. Additional screws can be purchased in quantities of 100.

Yes, the Deck Jig™ carries a lifetime warranty. This warranty covers only the Deck Jig™ itself, and specifically excludes accessories (drill bit, driver bit, screws. etc.)

Yes, the Kreg Tool Concealed Deck-Fastening System has been recognized by ICC-ES as compliant with the 2009 IBC and IRC for deck-fastening installations.

The Kreg Jig® K4 Master System includes a Benchtop Base, Drill Guide Block, 3″ Face Clamp, Portable Base, Material Support Stop, Dust Collection Attachment, Stepped Drill Bit with Depth Collar, 6″ Square Driver, 3″ Square Driver, Starter Kreg Screw Set, Starter Pocket-Hole Plug Set, and Quick-Start Guide.

The spacer blocks are used with the Drill Guide Block to make it easier to use portably. These blocks slide on to the bottom of the Drill Guide Block. Depending on the thickness of wood you are working with, you will need to adjust the number of spacer blocks you use. Each spacer block you use will add an additional 1/4″ to your setting. For example, with no spacer blocks, it is set up for 1/2″ material. But when you add a spacer block, it would then be set up for 3/4″ material.

The Hi-lo screw is meant to be used in medium-hardness woods like poplar.

The Material Support Stop is a handy tool that can be positioned any distance from your Kreg Jig® K4, allowing you to create pocket holes in the same position over and over again. Also, the stop can easily swing out of the way to serve as a support for large panels.

The minimum deck board spacing is 1/4″. If your spacing is less than 1/4″, the drill bit and screw can damage the adjacent board while being driven. The Deck Jig™ is not intended for use with green-treated deck boards that can shrink significantly after installation.

Inserting Kreg plugs into your pocket holes is easy when you use the tear-drop recess on the bottom side of your Kreg Jig® Mini. To use, simply place a plug into the tear-drop recess on the underside of the jig. Then, press on the jig to firmly seat the plug into your pocket hole.  

Deck Screws are available in two weather-resistant finishes: Protec-Kote™ and Stainless. Protec-Kote™ screws feature three anti-corrosion layers that protect against rusting in the majority of decking applications. They are a great choice for a wide variety of applications, including decks built with ACQ-treated framing. For even more protection, choose Stainless. Kreg Stainless Screws provide the best protection against corrosion in the long-term.

Deck Screws are offered in two lengths. Choose the length based on the thickness of the decking material you are using: 2″ screws for 4/4 – 5/4 (3/4″- to 11/8″-thick) material or 25/8″ screws for “2x” (11/2″-thick) decking material. 

You can attach your Kreg Jig® to any size of board.  A size that we recommend is 12″ x 24″.  This size gives you a decent-sized clamping area, yet doesn’t take up too much space.

Kreg deck screws use a #1 KTX square driver. This special head gives you the strongest driving power and reduce the possibility of “cam-out”. 

The Deck Jig™ works with any solid decking material between 4/4—5/4 (3/4″- to 11/8″-thick), as well as “2x” (11/2″-thick) decking material. The Deck Jig™ works with materials that have plain (non-grooved) edges. The Deck Jig™ works best with composite materials, but also works great with woods such as Cedar, and hardwoods like Ipe and Ironwood. The Deck Jig™ is not recommended for use with pressure-treated decking. 

SML screws feature our Maxi-Loc™ head. Because of its larger head, this screw seats extremely well in a pocket hole. The SPS screw is a pan-head style. This smaller-diameter head works extremely well with hardwoods and with thin stock. 

With the purchase of a Kreg Jig® K4 Master System, you will receive these bonus accessories: Portable Base, Material Support Stop, Premium Face Clamp, and the Dust Collection Attachment. These items must be purchased as additional accessories with the Kreg Jig® K4.

The selection between fine and coarse will depend on the type of wood you are working with. For softwoods like pine, you will want to use the coarse screws. For hardwoods like oak, you will want to use the fine-thread screws.

Any of our Face Clamps will work with the Kreg Jig® R3. However, the  Automaxx™ Face Clamps are usually the easiest to work with due to their smaller size and maneuverability. 

Kreg pocket-hole plugs are designed to work with wood from 3/4″- to 11/2″-thick. Because of this, it is possible that once the plug is inserted into your pocket hole, it will protrude past the workpiece surface. To eliminate any excess material and bring your plug to flush, we recommend using a flush-trimming saw or a flush-cut laminate bit in your router to trim off the majority of waste, and then sanding to flush. 

We do not offer a fine-thread screw longer than 11/2″ due to the fact that fine-thread screws have a smaller diameter and have the tendency to break off in harder woods. If you are working with hardwoods thicker than 11/2″, you can set your jig up for 3/4″ and use the 11/2″ fine-thread screw. This will give you almost 1″ into the mating piece, creating a strong joint.

Due to changes in climate and humidity, it is possible that your plugs have absorbed some moisture and swollen up, making them really snug or sometimes unable to fit. A weird but simple solution for this is to “bake” your plugs in the microwave for a few seconds. This will draw the moisture out, so they should fit in your pocket hole with no problem.

We are required by law to collect sales tax in any state that we hold a physical presence, or “nexus” in. This “physical presence” is loosely defined: It can be ANY location, facility, employee, call center, address, or even one independent sales person in a state. We have established this “nexus” through the employment of an independent sales rep for each of the 50 United States. We are required, and do collect and remit sales tax in each state. The tax, as it appears on your order confirmation, is estimated based upon the base tax rate for your state. Any local taxes will then be added to the total amount in your final invoice.

Chances are, your order included one of our large machines. Any order containing a large machine will be palletized on a truck. As a result, our system generates two separate orders and sends you two confirmations.

Our carriers may deem a package undeliverable for one of the following reasons:

Incorrect Address – If the address in incorrect or outdated, the package is typically returned to us by the carrier. Please double-check your address carefully when placing your order.
Damaged Label. In rare cases, it is possible that the address label becomes illegible during the shipping and handling process, or that the carrier made a mistake and left the package at a different address than what was printed on the label.

Failed Delivery Attempts – Most of our carriers make three attempts to deliver a package. Packages that contain more than $700 of merchandise will always require a signature. Otherwise, it is generally up to the driver’s discretion to determine whether a signature is required. If the driver feels it is best to obtain a signature and no one is present to accept the delivery after three attempts, the package will be returned to us.

Refused by Recipient – If a gift recipient is not expecting a gift, they may refuse the package if they believe it was sent to them in error. If you still want to send these items, you may want to let the recipient know that a surprise is on the way.

Routing Tools

Yes, you can. When you remove the Level-Loc™ Reducing Rings, the opening in the plate measures 35/8″ in diameter. This is large enough for most panel-raising bits.

Yes, the Precision Benchtop Router Table can be used with a router lift kit. You need to make sure that the kit’s plate is the same size as the opening in the table: 91/4″ x 113/4″ x 3/8″. 

The Precision Benchtop Router Table can be used as a jointer, with the help of its included jointing rods. Insert the two jointing rods behind the fence face on the outfeed side. There are two positions that allow you to remove 1/32″ or 1/16″ of material.  

To adjust your fence opening for different-sized bits, loosen the screws that attach the face boards. Then, slide them open or closed depending on which bit you are using. You want the opening to be slightly larger than the bit itself. This gives you the best protection from injury, as well as the smoothest transition between the infeed and outfeed sides of the fence. 

If your fence catches while being moved, make sure that you are using only one hand at the clamp block to move it. If you are trying to move it at both ends, it may jam and catch.

Micro-Dot™ skin is constructed from a high-pressure laminate and has small raised “dots” that make it easy to slide workpieces across the table.

The Precision Benchtop Router Table surface measures 16″ x 24″. 

The insert plate measures 91/4″ x 113/4″ x 3/8″.

The insert plate measures 91/4″ x 113/4″ x 3/8″.

The dust port hole is offset to give you the best suction, which allows for the most chip collection. This is accomplished by creating a vortex to suck the excess dust away from the bit.
